I am proud of the opportunities that the Volunteering team give to so many individuals. Being so inclusive and non-judgemental opens so many doors for those that may have not had the chance to thrive and develop before. I am proud that Turning Tides are a co-produced organisation, by listening and learning from those individual that have lived in the homeless community enables us to understand and help change lives, this is invaluable.
I love meeting so many interesting and diverse people, both clients and volunteers, I love the variety it offers and I love the freedom the organisation allows for creative and innovative ways to improve and enhance staff, clients and volunteers experiences. Everything we do is with client and volunteers in mind while offering volunteers the best possible experience. I am proud of our corporate and youth volunteering opportunities and how we involve the wider community in the organisation.
I genuinely love every aspect of my job. I appreciate all the wonderful people I get to meet on a daily basis; volunteers, clients and colleagues. It is a very friendly place to work and I am constantly learning. I am proud to work alongside some incredible people. I am proud that we have people in our volunteer team who have supported the charity since the outset. I am proud that we have opportunities for everyone in our community to get involved, whether its 1 day a year or 1 day a week. I am thrilled that our incredible volunteers have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service!
